Ancestry adds UK, University of London Student Records, 1836-1945

From the University of London Archive come these 188,619 records.

It's not just London. "During the 19th and early 20th centuries, students who attended other institutions took University of London examinations as external students. Included in these lists, therefore, are students who attended the predecessor institutions of universities such as Birmingham, Bristol, Durham, Dundee, Heriot-Watt, Southampton, Exeter, Newcastle, Nottingham, Manchester, Sheffield, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool, Bangor, Aberystwyth, Surrey, Queen’s University Belfast, and University College Dublin."

Search by name. Many of the results will be entries in a list with the name, the degree, year and college. Reference to married and maiden names and other name changes may be found.

Lists of personnel in the armed forces, 1914-18 and 1939-45, who were associated with the University of London are also included with regiment, rank and occasionally other information such as prisoner of war.
